now you're talking my language, my last boat was a 1965 cal 30 hull #55. wish i still had it. took that boat to cabo mexico and elsewhere. Bill lapworth made some sturdy designs, mine had an atomic four which i had no probs with except for the fuel tank leaking itself into the bildge. the keel wasn't full but wasnt fin either, more like 3/4 full if that makes any sense. a couple of things to check for are the cutlass bearings and packing and also the tiller shaft packing (subject to leaks) but a very seaworthy boat!
this pic is the day i bought her. Ugly but sweet!
